What's hot and what's not?  Eliminate the "not" because anything flower related is all hot!!  Vintage romance, traditional elegance, modern with an edgy twist and garden simplicity are all very popular looks in the floral industry right now.  The vast array of talent that our industry possesses is INCREDIBLE.  Here are some examples of current floral trends that is HOT HOT HOT!!!!

  • garden roses and peonies
  • succulents
  • berries, pods, textural greens
  • the color CORAL (please refer to my blurb about coral)
  • anything in peach, cream, blush, pale yellow and once again CORAL
  • purples & lavenders

The list is endless and I could go on for days, but I want hear from you!  What  floral trends are you currently seeing?  What's HOT HOT HOT??

"Never sell a  specific flower (unless mother nature confirms it will be available).  Sell a specific look, sell a specific style, sell your passion and the rest is left to follow."

I plan on bringing our readers all things flora and fun, mixed with some serious posts about the flower business. I like to think of myself as pretty well-rounded - having passion for design (flowers, web, decor, etc.), marketing, photography, tech, and business. I'm a huge believer in continual education, so I'm always looking for new ideas and hope to share that journey with you!

Coming from a background in interior design, I'm trying my hand at flowers, and will be spending the next year learning the ins & outs of the business. I will be sharing my experiences as the new kid on the block, hoping to inspire other young, aspiring floral designers like myself. I grew up in the wholesale flower business, but hope to use my education and experience to eventually create a unique and innovative approach to floral design. Follow along for a blend of educational tid-bits, my thoughts & musings on the business, and a peek into my crazy journey into the world of flowers! #alitheflorist
